Two times the fun and twice as cute – meet Zoe and Scout, our Adoptable Dogs of the Week! These lovely ladies live in Grants, New Mexico and are taking part in a wonderful prison training program where inmates train and care for rescue animals! They are both already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

Zoe and Scout’s Story:

Sisters forever! Non-shedding female terrier crosses Zoe and Scout are litter mates, and love to lounge in a welcoming lap. These two dogs were trained at the Woman’s Correctional Facility in Grants, New Mexico (where they’re staying now), and are still a little fearful of the loud noises at the prison, but are coping well. Both are very sweet and lovable – they don’t have to be adoptable together, but life is twice as nice with two adorable dogs! Zoe weighs 22 pounds and Scout weighs 24 pounds, and both get along with other dogs although are a bit wary of bigger dogs.
